Our night was originally heading to Toro for Spanish tapas, but as soon as we arrived we were informed of a 2hr wait time for a table/1hr for the bar... Yeah right. Thankfully our Uber driver had anticipated this and recommended we try Stella across the street if we couldn't find seating. What an awesome recommendation! We walked the 2... More

Don't miss the Crudo misto. We usually share here tapas style dishes to get as many tastes as possible, and you can prder here 2 halfs pastas which is great. We also like the Artichoke hearts. The Linguini. The Papardele bolognese (I never thought a bolognese can surprise)

After a long day of exploring Boston and then catching the Yanks/Sox game, we stumbled upon Stella after some internet research. This place is just wonderful for great Italian fare. We made an OpenTable ressie 30 minutes before we hoped to eat and they accommodated us in every way. They start you off with some homemade foccacia and a white... More

Some locals love this place. That's fine. But I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here. It is quite a loud atmosphere and there was nothing outstanding about any of the dishes we sampled.

Went here as a part of a bigger group. We had a reserved room that was very nice. The apps and drinks were great. The meal, which some times leaves a bit to be desired in a larger setting was still delicious. My steak was perfectly done to my liking as was my colleagues. Would go there again!

Eight of us sat down to dinner and we're served promptly and professionaly, unfortunately the food was just average. The eggplant appetizer was pedestrian, nothing special and the linguini in white clam sauce was overcooked & bland. Stella's looks modern & hip but the chef is very traditional; like your neighborhood bistro for half the price.

The atmosphere is lovely. I thought that everything being white, would feel cold and uninviting, but I was incorrect. The white gives everything an nice clean look, but it is also very warm and inviting. The bartender was very nice and welcoming and made an excellent martini. Although the hostess(es) greeted us, I still felt that they were uninterested in... More

We ate well, good food. Service was good as well. I found it noisy bcs of the acoustics, and did not particularly like the decoration, kind of cold.

This trendy corner spot is as always whenever I have visited a place that does not disappoint. The staff is friendly and accommodating. It hears toward a trendy " going out for a dinner, drinks and fun " crew. It has beautiful white decor. Great different rooms and a nice bar up front. Evan the owner is as always a... More
